An Offer He Can’t Refuse

It’s Friday and time for a commercial message. If you follow the link below to today’s Arlo & Janis comic strip at GoComics, you’ll see a blue bar at the upper left that says “Follow.” If you already follow this strip, the bar will say “Unfollow.” If that is the case, Don’t touch it! If you aren’t “following” Arlo & Janis, I hope you will consider it. There is one slight catch: you have to sign up for a GoComics account. It doesn’t cost anything, and all you will be asked to do is provide an email address and create a password. (You will be asked if you’re 13 years old or older, but they don’t really have any way to check that.) Besides my gratitude, there are benefits to a GoComics account, whether you have a free account or a paid premium account. You can follow any number of comics besides A&J, and they’ll be collected and waiting for you every day. Plus, you will be able to make all kinds of helpful suggestions to your favorite cartoonists in the “comments” section. I don’t like to ask this sort of thing of you very often, but Arlo & Janis is coming up on 70,000 followers. I guess I’m getting impatient. (In case you’re interested, you can click on the “About” tab above any GoComics feature, and it will show you the number of readers following that feature.)
